obama to tackle gun violence. >> we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. >> reporter: what exactly does he mean by meaningful action? critics of the president's record on the issue are pressing for specific proposals. new york mayor michael bloomberg said calling for meaningful action is not enough. we need immediate act action. we heard all the rhetoric before. what we have not seen is leadership. not from the white house and not from congress. gun violence has not been a priority for the obama administration. as he ran for president in 2008, he supported running a ban on assault weapons. >> keeping ak 47s out of the hands of criminals. >> reporter: once selected, he did not make good on his campaign pledge. the brady campaign to prevent gun violence gave the president across the board fs on its report card. >> the senate will come to order. >> reporter: a major obstacle for the president, congress, where even in the democratic controlled senate, little appetite to touch the controversial is
much involved in action oriented programs. want to be known as the thing tank. i want to be known as an action oriented place that can make a difference in the world. i want to thank you all for having faith in us when we first convince you to support the bush center on the smu campus. laura and i just got back from a boy, and the nba. we went over there because at the bush center, one of her major initiatives is to honor human life. we believe all life is precious, whether they live in america for the continent of africa were disturbed by the fact that many women who have hiv/aids -- hiv virus are getting cervical cancer and not much is being done about it. so with your help could whip together together a collaborative effort to save lives. part of the mission was to kick off what we call pink ribbon, red pregnant in botswana as well as follow up in zambia where we kicked it off in december. laura and i also liked to go on refurbish a clinic. i wanted it to be a matter doesn't matter what your status is in life, you're never too proud to handily pay rush. ended up with more paint
and two shorter ones in his pocket and had it not been for the quick action, the courageous action of people there, he would have loaded and 30 more bullets would have been discharged. i come to this issue as a parent and a grandparent. i was on my way to the rural part of my district on friday when i heard the news about the shootings in connecticut. first i heard three had died. that was bad enough, and then i heard 20 children had died. i was devastated. i have two grandchildren the same age as the children who were shot and killed in newtown, connecticut. on sunday, when i opened the newspaper to read about the shootings, i saw a photograph of one of the children who was killed. her name was emily. a little blonde-haired girl with a beautiful smile. she looked at me from the paper, i saw my granddaughter's elsa and tilly looking back at me. so i come to this issue as a grandparent whose children but for fate could have been in the same situation as the children in newtown. and come to this as a member of congress. you know the people back home in just about every district keep
explaining his horrific actions. but lieutenant paul vance said clues to the possible motive have been recovered in multiple searches. >> did produce some very-- a very good evidence in this investigation, that our investigators will be able to use and hopefully painting the complete picture as to how and more importantly why this occurred. >> reporter: now, we have to say it's not clear why at this hour lanza targeted that elementary school. there were early reports yesterday indicating the mother naiive a teacher there, perhaps an aide at sandy hook. police have found no evidence she had any obvious connection to the school. and one more thing, jim. police now are checking on a different report that maybe adam lanza was involved in an argument with staffers at the school the day before the shooting, but i have to emphasize they have not yet confirmed that. jim. >> axelrod: bob orr in washington, thank you. senior correspondent john miller has been talking to his law enforcement source. he joins me now for more. john, are you hearing anything about this altercation? >> reporter: yeah,
democrat in the house. made it clear the time for action is now. >> i think there's a better chance to do that now than ever. not that one child's life is more important than another person's life, but the volume, the impact of this that every child can feel vulnerable. the fact there's been so many events in close proximity and timewise to each other that this is almost a tipping point. >> it is a tipping point. democrats are looking to push a bill this week that would ban high-capacity magazines. like those used in newtown. it's not just the white house. it's not just congress. today there's major news out of michigan where the republican governor rick snyder has vetoed legislation that would allow concealed weapons in churches and schools and day care centers. new polls show support for stricter gun control is at a ten-year high. the company that owns the gun maker that produced the rifle used in last week's massacre plans to sell it. calling the shooting a quote, water shed event. and dick sporting goods has suspend the sale of modern sporting rifles in all of their change. this is ch
? why can't there be legislative action immediately if there's the desire of the people and overwhelming numbers show 57% if not higher asking americans if they want stricter gun controls, that i say yes. why does it have to be one or the other, mental health or some type of reasonable or sensible common sense ban on certain weapons? >> m-o-n-e-y. the republican party gets 80% or 90% of the money the nra dolls out to buy them and as a result it's always everything except for the gun but the reality is and people are smarter than this, there's always been mental illness. there's always been evil in our society. but what we now have is unrestricted access to military-style killing machines with bullets that were used to riddle the babies' bodies on friday. designed to maximize soft tissue damage. i mean, come on. and these members of congress look the other way and say it's everything but. they're just in the pocket of the nra and the democrats haven't been much better. we can get real substantive national gun laws that could save real people's lives and we can stop allowing congress to le
state, that we need action, and people say, well, it has to be comprehensive, and, sure, it has to be comprehensive, but there are certain things we can do right away. we could get rid of assault rifles. we can get rid of magazines that have more than ten bullets in them. had this guy been limited to a magazine clip that had ten bullets, nearly half those children would survive. it would wouldn't limb nature on incidents like this, but we can cut down on the carnage significantly. we can also close the gun show loophole. you know, it's shocking, alex, that 40% of the guns purchased in america are purchased without the buyer being subject to a background check. even nra members, 74% of nra members and 89% of all gun owners want background checks before anybody can get a gun, so the men and women in congress have to stiffen their backs, not be afraid of the organization the nra, because the members of the nra are better than the organization, and it's time for us to act finally once and for all. >> howard, your boss, mayor michael bloomberg, has been leading the charge on gun cont
america up. and we're looking at this issue now, and we want action. >> okay, thank you so much, chief johnson. larry johnson, thank you, sir, for joining us as well, and thank you cliff van zandt. and chris jansing, my colleague at msnbc. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz picks up msnbc's continuing coverage of the sandy hook elementary school shooting right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. there are tragedies in life that shake our souls and break our hearts. today the nation experienced one of those tragedies. every american will struggle to come to grips with what happened today in a small community in connecticut. sandy hook elementary school in the small community of about 27,000 residents was the site of a shooting rampage. at this hour we know 26 people at the school were shot and killed by a lone gunman. 20 of those deceased were children. surviving students and their parents said teachers ordered children to hide in closets. witnesses reported hearing dozens of shots, as many as 100

're supposed to do. if there is no notice about any discretionary action, that notice will incorporate notice about the c-e-q-a that would, you know -- >> but you could appeal c-e-q-a on nonplanning related permits. i just want to -- >> yes. so, i guess -- so, in terms of this argument, looking at the first discretionary action, can you describe what currently are considered -- you said not all permits are discretionary permits. so, could you outline some of the permits that are discretionary? maybe the city attorney could do that. >> i'll take a start. i think the simplest thing is to talk about the things that are in the planning department's domain. conditional use permit is a discretionary permit. a building permit is maybe the most widespread for exemptions. but there are many departments that take discretionary actions. the park takes actions. mta takes actions, puc takes actions. some of those are discretionary, some are not. all that are discretionary subject to c-e-q-a.
action on the term sheet, that pier 30-32 ground lease and seawall lot 30 or amendments to the water plan until after pier 30-32 cac holds meeting to discuss those items. so i do want to again appreciate those. i think the most important thing at this point is a substantive and robust discussion and process that is meaningful. i think at the end of the day it will land on a better project both for this neighborhood and for the city and i look forward to that engagement. i really want to thank our neighborhood and community leaders for being respectful of the process and agreeing to participate in this. it could be something that people could set out and just say we oppose it, no way, we're not going to participate. but i really want to give it up for our residents for really approaching this in a respectful way and being open-minded and trying to work with the warriors on putting forward the best process. >> president chiu: thank you. supervisor kim has made a motion to amend. seconded by supervisor campos. >> supervisor campos: thank you, mr. president. i just want to briefly note that i
. that is critical and sometimes we pass the policies and our actions never conform with the policies that we pass, so if we're serious about reaching that goal in 10 years i think we really need to get serious and that's why cleanpower sf is so important, but in closing i want to go back again and harp on my jimmy carter issue of earlier and i'm going to take this quote. it says "soon after jimmy carter installed solar panels on the white house. a generation from now i think this is in the 70's or early 80's the solar heater can be a surcosity, a museum piece, a example of a road not taken, or a small part of one of the greatest adventures under taken by the american people and harness the power of the sun and move away from the crippling dependence on foreign oil, and again at that point we can say that the solar panels were a museum piece. i am hoping cleanpower sf isn't this interesting idea that creeped up and disappeared because of all the misinformation and whatever that certain interests will probably have in seeing this sort of plan not succeed, so again when i was 16 my first venture
have been done, then lead to either one. there has to be an official action taken by the two bodies in order for a landmark to be designated and also for historic district to be designated. so, i'd like to have some consideration given by the commission to extending the liberalization of uses to contributory buildings in designated historic districts, of which i don't think there are any in western soma at the moment. i don't believe so. >> i don't believe so. >> okay. and the other approach might be to take a look at what kind of liberalization could be implemented for these types of buildings and there could be a difference between, for example, landmark buildings and contributory buildings. i think it's mainly -- the liberalization is aimed at uses i think and what can be allow and had what can't be allowed. and there might be consideration to tweaking that a bit for the plan in terms of what kinds of uses might be allowed and what kinds of uses might not be. so, that's a suggestion. and then just on -- this isn't directed to you, it's just a comment. on the overlap between the t
, is of course military folks do this a lot, is to read the after action. i think a lot of work, time and thought has been put into that. i think one of the best conferences that i've attended was the very last one in september, which was the after action. i know jill raycauft and lucas ekrode have taken this to heart so we do have a road map for next year. read the after action. no. 2, captain houston mentioned it already, it's think open architecture. i noticed that departures for the military, our communication is encrypted, when you are doing humanitarian assistance or even here on national soil, you need to be able to communicate. so that was a take away, probably unencrypted plain text communication. think open architecture. the last one that i have is definitely familiarize yourself with disca, it's coming to the forefront, communications quite specifically. that means knowing what civilian authorities utilize in terms of frequencies and wave forms and that's not something that we do every day as communicators. so it provides an opportunity for a more well-round ed case
in action. we're trying to intensify and heighten those communications and we narrow that apure tour down from its global engagement from the japanese nuclear reactor, be it haiti, turkey, be it mexico, be it honduras, new orleans, and hopefully we prepare for something that will never happen in the bay area. and that's what you do today. again, the great tragedy to me, the great tragedy would be if we have capabilities each of us can offer and we don't bring them to bear on the game. so i thank you and congratulate you on the difference you are making, the partners, learning the communications, learning how to be where you have to be. our responsibilities, every one of you out there, what will you do when that tap on the shoulder comes? what will you do when your pager goes off? what will you do if you hear all of a sudden los angeles has been hit by a 6.7. what will los angeles do if they hear san francisco has been hit by a 7.2? what will we do, where will you be, all those people who work for you, do they know their azuped place, do they know where to go? do we in the military u
and these children are our children. and we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. this evening, michelle and i will do what i know every parent in america will do, which is hug our children a little tighter and we'll tell them that we love them. and we'll remind each other how deeply we love one another. but there are families in connecticut who cannot do that tonight and they need all of us right now. in our days to come, the community needs us to be at our best as americans and i will do everything in my power as president to help. because, while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one all of us can extend the hand to those in need to remind name we are there for them that we are praying for them, that the love they felt for those they lost endures not just in their memories but also in ours. may god bless the memory of the victims and in the words of scripture heal the broken hearted and bind up their wounds >> o'donnell: there you have the president of the united states speaking as the comman
is before us. >> thank you. so first, this is just an informational item. this is not an action item and there is not a project before you to approve or disprove, but the planning code states no application proposing an amendment, conditional use or variance, the same or substantially the same as that which was disapproved shall be resnit smieed or reconsidered by the planning commission or zoning administrator within a period of one year of effective action upon the earlier application this. is where the one-year bar has been raised and the planning code says you cannot submit the same or substantially the same project. it's a planning code provision and i reviewed the plans submitted and found it's not substantially the same, so it can come before you within the year. it's fully within your discretion when you have the hearing on that item and i don't know when that date would be. you would have a full public hearing with notification and you would have full discretion as you do for any other action that you take this. is no different than any other action you would be able too
and i agree with that. i have five children myself, but i also want to be able to take action so that this won't happen. three of my children are going to be going to elementary school on monday so we need to take some action and as a police officer, i can tell you what needs to be done is these gun-free school zones, that needs to be repealed. we have to have protection there and we have to have the ability for teachers and you know, people on the campuses to be able to defend themselves and to protect these young children. >> rick: so what you're talking about having someone armed and trained inside every school around the country in the event of something like this happening. >> i'm not talking about necessarily hiring or having a police state, but talking about allowing teachers and, you know, other personnel that work at the school to have the ability to have a weapon. if that principal, and i know it's a very tragic incident, but if that principal had a weapon. there have been a chance to save her own life, but we need to take this notion of, you know, not taking action now
received distinguished service cross for his actions but it is typical of many rangers out there, never been a ranger who received a medal of honor and after the breast campaign the men moved in boxcars that could take 40 men or eight horses, moved up to a place which some people call the factory of death, a six months campaign, the longest battle of world war ii that never took place, the allies were convinced the forest would be an assembly area that if it wasn't neutralized the allied armies would be attacked, the germans recognized the forces in a natural defensive place and spend several days pouring it with german veterans, every single -- the place was pre registered, there were bunkers, it was a death trap. there were hundreds and hundreds of thousands of mines across the forest floor and conifer trees blocked the sunlight, it was hard to see at times. in blog co. a battalion was placed at the reserve unit. it was fair, special operations missions and many of them took place. but all the men have universally said one thing, our longest day was not d-day. was december 7th, 1944.
distinguish preferences from action, but whether we can identify those either before the fact or after the fact that had that inability to control their actions. >> yeah, but what we do know is that even like the one that kent presented, the pedestriano file out of virginia, that the vast majority of people who have a tumor like that who may have preferences and desires to act on sexual impulses don't. though we may not know in any particular case whether a person is an automoton, usually you can. the law has a bright line. it says if you engage in a wongful action, there is a defense called the insanity defense which never works as most of us know because we don't recognize it. should we recognize it, that's an interesting question. should we have a more robust concept of diminished responsibility in light of the understanding that some people have less control over their preferences and desires or should we have better sentencing schemes or get rid of incarceration and come up with different models of trying to deal with punishment once we understand people have wrong select
intervening action or debate on calendar number 834, 835 and 877 in that order. the motion to reconsider be considered made and laid on the table, there be no intervening action or debate and that no further motions be in order and that any related statements be printed in the record and that president obama be immediately notified of the senate's action and the senate then resume legislative session. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. reid: mr. president, i ask unanimous consent that at a time to be determined by the majority leader, after consultation with the republican leader, the senate proceed to the consideration of the conference report to accompany h.r h.r. 43, the department of defense authorization act, for fiscal year 2013, that there be up to an hour of debate equally divided between the two leaders their designees prior to a vote on adoption of the conference report. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. reid: thank you, mr. president. i would note the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: quorum call: quor
with executive action. take a listen. >> well, i think that there are a number of things, and those are things that we're going to be talking about over the course of the next few weeks. not an extended period of time. the president, i guess, will be talking about this, but have specific proposals for congress to consider. we'll also look at what executive action the president might take. megyn: joining me now, chris stirewalt, our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. so what kind of executive action is he talking about, chris? when he had the assault weapons ban in place from '94 to 2004, it was a big political deal, and a lot of folks who voted for it wound up getting kicked out of office because, you know, gun rights are something people feel very passionately about in the country. if it could have been done by executive action, in other words, that's probably how other presidents would have been done it too. >> well, certainly, the president in a second term might feel differently about this than he did in the first term. he has some latitude when
tes tantntestant the reality when you look at the republican actions in particular, and the republican actions are polling 20% approval and the president is polling 50% approval, but the 20% approval is about the action on the cliff and not how they play in their individual districts. so when you travel around the country, and i have been to e tea party country in arizona, et cetera, there is a huge incentive for some of the more junior members of congress to stand their ground. it doesn't have to do with the fiscal math of the country, but it has to do with the electoral math of the home districts. >> and i think that she has put the finger on the thing that we are missing when we taub abolk this, because we act as if congress governs at a body with national interests and held accountable to national constituencies, but no, if it is game theory, each one of them is facing a different payoff structure in their own home constituen constituency. >> and it is skewed. first of all the tea party a minority, but the way that the republicans control the state governmentships and the state leg
particularly want to thank you, we need to take action. congress needs to come together and take action to protect the safety of our children. we must do better. there have been too many episodes in which children's lives and others have been lost that we must figure out ways to do things, to act to prevent these types of tragedies. this conversation must include a discussion about the culture of violence that preemanates our culture today, including the glorification of violence to our children and young adults. we see too much of this violence and it has to have an impact on young children. we need to know how we can responsibly deal with this circumstance. must include a discussion of the mental health services provided to americans, including our students. many of us have talked about this in the past. we have to be more aggressive in dealing with the mental health needs of all the people in our community. and as chairman leahy pointed out, we must discuss the issue about the ready access of individuals to weapons. now, i know there are different views in this congress. i must tell
of toyota are heading higher after the u.s. settled a class action lawsuit. the $1 billion payment is already priced in. okay. welcome to "worldwide exchange." plenty of news to watch out of washington. all of this week, we thought it would be a quiet one. but i won't be inside the beltway if they want to get something done. the u.s. will hit the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling come monday. in a letter to congressional leaders, geithner says treasury will begin taking steps to save the government about $2 billion. geithner says it's harder to predict a time frame because the ongone fiscal cliff talks make it difficult to forecast next year's budget. among the measures treasury will take including suspending state and local government securities and investments in the federal employee pension funds. those don't sound like good practices going forward. president obama meanwhile arrives back in washington after cutting short his christmas vacation in hawaii. congress is back in town, but little progress was made over the holiday to avoid the fiscal cliff and no talks have been set. the se
